Mrs. Alice Don Carlos Vogel, 71. Air— Webb 

As pilgrims journ'ying hither 

From every land and clime, 
To bow in willing homage 

Before our country's shrine, 
Where liberty and justice 

Shine each a peerless gem, 
That gilds with light eternal 

Columbia's diadem. 

So we to Alma Mater 

Our loyal tribute bring, 
And incense pure and fragrant, 

In radiant censers swing; 
We'll twine for every loved one, 

Alike below, above, 
With blossoms amaranthine, 

A coronal of love. 

Fond memories in each bosom, 

Like June's white lillies blow, 
The winds re-echo softly 

The songs of long ago; 
We hear the old time voices, 

That lure us back to ways 
We trod in dewy mornings 

Of golden yesterdays. 

As flowers may bloom in beauty 

Amidst the storms of earth, 
So, oft in pain and sorrow, 

True pleasures have their birth; 
O may we all be mindful, 

Though dark and drear the way, 
The star that gems the night time 

Is herald of the day!

As we enter the College, live in its halls, our interest 
becomes centered in girls, in faculty members, in local 
affairs. Our interest is in definite people, definite things, 
not in the way in which the College is affected by them, 
but as they affect us. Unless, when we leave the College, 
we transfer our interest in the individual to an interest in 
the College as it is affected by the girls in general, our con- 
cern and enthusiasm for I. W. C. will dwindle and dis- 

For instance, much concern has been felt for the com- 
plaints which come to us from the former students. 
'The Greetings contains nothing of interest for us, The 
present students are unknown to us. None of the faculty 
members we know are there, the locals and sketches are 
of no interest if you don't know the people." The Greet- 
ings is an organ of the College, it represents as nearly as 
possible the life of the College, it records as well as it is 
able the progress the College is making. If the interest 
was in the College, wouldn't the Greetings help to keep 
you in connection with it? 

There is another way in which these objections may 
be removed, a way in which you may be able to keep in 
touch with the College and with each other. The Greet- 
ings will gladly set aside a space for a regular monthly 
alumna department, to be filled by your contributions, to 
be controlled by an alumna appointed by you, to collect

and send in before the fifteenth of each month to the local 
editor. Let the secretaries of the classes take hold of the 
matter until the next meeting of the association in June 
and send to the Board some material for this department. 

The Greetings wishes to express its appreciation to 
Mrs. Lambert. To her we are indebted for much of the 
information of this number. 

The numbers of the Greetings for the first three 
months of this year have been sold out, but if any of you 
should care to have the June number 1913, which contains 
the close and account of our late endowment campaign, 
the Greetings will be glad to mail it to you for the regular 
price. We, have, also a limited number of complete 
volumes for the year (1909-10) — (1910-11) — (1911- 
12) — (1912-13) which will be sent at the regular price, 

It has been impossible to print all of the material 
which has been sent in. We will endeavor to use it from 
time to time in the alumnae notes. Among the material 
is a story which was sent to us by Mrs. Hettie Anderson 
Wilson of '02 which, because of its length and late arrival 
we will have to lay aside to a future time. 

A good many years ago some Educators with a vision 
had a glimpse of a real Woman's College for the middle 
west, and as a result foundations for the present institu- 
tion were laid. The first years were a real struggle and 
many times the realization of the vision seemed too far 
distant to be a reality. The present administration had 
more faith and saw a much clearer picture of that college 
in the distance, than anyone had ever seen and as a result 
of the untiring energy of our beloved Dr. Harker, we have 
today the best Woman's College in the middle west. 

It is comparatively easy when we return at Commence- 
ment time and attend class reunions and alumnae meet-

ings to develop some enthusiasm, but to keep this interest 
throughout the year seems to be another matter. What 
per cent of the alumnae keep in touch with the college 
through "TheGreetings? " I fear we would not be proud 
to see that subscription list. Yet, 'The Greetings," as a 
college paper has grown in every way in spite of our lack 
of support. With our support what might the Editorial 
Staff do? The publication of a special alumnae number 
is a compliment which we should appreciate. 

The present student body seems more capable of 
arousing college spirit than we ever did. Our interest and 
support should now come in another direction. Few of us 
realize to what an extent we may influence the future 
growth of the college. There is a certain community, a 
particular circle of people, where our personal ideas and 
opinions, regarding the Woman's College will have more 
influence than any one elses. We can all do much in the 
matter of influencing students to investigate the college 
and compare it with other schools. One by one this will 
add students to the enrollment. 

We can see many steps of advancement in the college 
organizations. The tendency to get away from the more 
narrow, exacting, boarding school life, and have in its 
place broader college principles does more to increase and 
to keep the student body together than any other one 
thing. The student council, steps towards student gov- 
ernment and the college annual, indicate a move in the 
right direction. 

The organization of I. W. C. societies with headquar- 
ters in many of the largest cities has done much to keep 
interest stimulated among us and it also gives all former 
students a chance to combine their interest with ours. 

It is only with the closest co-operation that we may 
hope to accomplish anything worth while. If each of us 
does her part, I. W. C. can become one of the leading 
colleges of the country. 

Susan Rebhan, '05.

Antonio, bold and bleak and white, 

With many a snow, so soft and light, , 

And glistening in the radiant, bright 

And glorious southern sun. 

How oft I've watched the afterglow, 

Those opal lights, that come and go 

Upon thy bosom, white with snow, 

When day is done. 

Ah, well I love thy lofty crest, 

The stunted pines that hug thy breast, 

As if to find some peace and rest, 

From winter's icy blast. 

The sun that shone so gloriously, 

Has slipped and fallen in the sea, 

And stars keep silent watch o'er thee 

For night has come at last. 

Phebe Kreider Murray, '90. 


The ambition to write lurks in the hearts of a large 
number of college women. Occasionally the ambition 
is so strong that it emerges from its secluded corner and, 
expressing itself in neatly written pages, journeys to mag- 
azine and newspaper editors. There it meets with vary- 
ing degrees of success and failure and, according to the 
powers of perseverance of the literary aspirant, it lives 
triumphant or returns, sick with discouragement, to the 
secluded corner from which it came. 

The greatest drawback to the success of the average 
literary aspirant is her entirely unpractical view of the 
business of literature. She is apt to regard literature as 
a profession built up by genius and inspiration. She fails 
to realize that literature is a business dependent on the 
same principles that govern every line of money making 

Page Six 

®be College Greeting* 

The young woman who wishes to write should go 
atout her work just as if it were any other business. The 
giil who intends to teach or to do concert or lecture work 
expects to toil many hours a day every day. She studies 
the methods and results of the men and women who are 
succeeding in her line of work. And she does not expect 
to become, immediately upon beginning her work, the 
peer of these same successful men and women. 

The literary aspirant usually plans to work by inspira- 
tion or in the romantic flicker of the midnight oil, writing 
high grade stories that will be promptly accepted by the 
big magazines or declined on account of the stupidity of 
the editors. She has no realization of the long appren- 
ticeship that must be served * before her work is worth 

The business of writing means to write several hours 
a diy and keep everlastingly at it; to study the methods 
of tie men and women whose work is filling the magazines 
and newspapers; to learn every thing there is to be learned 
abcut the craft; to serve a probation period of rejection 
ana disappointment. 

Fiction and journalism are so closely related that it 
is mpossible to differentiate between them. The same 
principles govern both. Fiction requires, necessarily, a 
longer probation before it brings a secure income. Jour- 
nalism must also be learned through hard work and many 
dhapppointments. But the newspaper writer is paid the 
dcy she begins her work. 

There are greater opportunities in journalism for 
women today than there have ever been. During the last 
few years women's organizations have become important 
factors in the world's civic and industrial affairs. 
Women's interests must be written of by women. The 
projects undertaken by women today are dignified and 
successful and editors demand that they shall be so pre- 
sented to readers as to reflect their true spirit. The 
women who write them must be well educated women.

They must have dignity, poise and an all around mentil 
development. The day of the flippant society tattp 
and the Bohemian "sob sister'' is past. The well bijed 
college v/oman is the journalist of today. 

The financial returns of fiction and journalism 
better than in almost every woman's occupation, 
checks for the beginner's accepted stories are small 
the salary of a new reporter on a newspaper is not lar 
But as experience and reputation are acquired the scrib- 
bler's checks and salary increase and an income of several 
thousand dollars a year is practically assured the successful 
woman journalist. Annie Hinrichsen, '97. 


A beam shone down in a green, green glade 
From far in the sky to the grass it came 
Through leaves that danced and shadows made 
No two at once or ever the same. 
He shone, he twinkled, he waltzed in shade 
With flowers for partners, this gay young beam! 
He kissed each one in the part he played 
And left with no twinge on his part did seem. 
Each blossom he'd touched would drop her heacj 
When she saw her neighbor as rival led 
Then as all were tasted, he took his flight; 
The flowers crept under quite out of sight. 

Ann Marshall, '13. 


When one enters a Cotton Mill settlement, perhaps 
the first thought that flashes across the mind is that mud 
of the printed matter on the subject has too much local\ 
color. It is the exceptional mill where one finds the\ 
comforts for these narrowed lives. The conditions in 
the average mill of the south are too little known. 

Usually from the exterior these mills are not so un- 
attractive, and the awakening comes at the sight of the 

Page Eight 

$%e College Greeting* 

haunted faces of the mill hands. After spending an hour 
going through the various departments of labor, following 
the cotton as it goes through all its metamorphoses, hold- 
ing your head because the noise is nearly unbearable, 
coughing in sympathy with your less fortunate sister, 
ever watchful lest your clothes are caught in the unpro- 
tected machinery, you do not wonder at the expression of 
absolute dejection on all the faces. There are women, 
now grown old, who have been under the same roof for 
twelve hours every day since childhood; girls whose nim- 
ble fingers are ever active, but with minds yet asleep ;am- 
bitionless young men, pitiful creatures of fate; and often 
even children, early stolen from the cradle to help earn a 
miserable support for a larger family. 

Many of the southern cotton mills are owned by north- 
ern men who give no thought to the employes as long 
as the overseer properly manages the finances. His visits 
to the mill are few, and he does not know, or care to know 
the people who are employed. The overseer has just 
enough education to want to show his lordship over the 
mill hands; so their treatment is often very harsh. 

The tiresome length of the working hours from six 
to six, in an unsanitary mill, is not lessened by the help of 
a reasonable salary. The hands are paid not by hours 
but by the amount of work accomplished. Girls who 
begin work at eight or ten years of age, can often become 
so skillful with their fingers that they can earn as much 
as a dollar and a half a day. 

But if they can earn after ten years experience, a dollar 
and a half a day, of what worth is it to them ? Where do 
we find these girls after mill hours? Crowded back of 
the mills are the houses of the mill people, filthy, wretched 
two-roomed frame buildings, overcrowded with dirty-faced 
children. One may read volumes concerning these peo- 
ple, but not until you have gone inside these so-styled 
homes, and have seen the ignorance in all its worst forms, 
can you realize how the people in that little world live. 

Page Nine 

Cfje College Greeting* 

Here and there, a house conspicuous by its cleanliness, 
greets the eye; yonder is a group of girls neatly dressed, 
with a gleam of hope taking the place of the abject 
despair. What is the reason for such a change? It is 
then that we see the evidences of years and years of work 
done by the settlement workers. Often in spite of the 
opposition of the mill overseer, she gives her life that 
these people may have a glimpse, if only a peep into a 
world of higher ideals. In some mill districts, night 
schools have been organized for the young men and 
women, kindergartens and playgrounds for the children, 
and helpful meetings for the mothers, all through the un- 
selfish love of some settlement worker. 

In some cities, which may boast of mill owners with 
hearts, the mill conditions are as good as could be ex- 
pected; libraries, playgrounds, kindergartens, mother's 
meetings, schools, hospitals, improved housing conditions, 
all being under the direct supervision of the mill owners. 
These are unusual mills. 

The solution of this present mill problem will not 
come until the mill people are given some chance for an 
education, and it can not be an open door to all under 
the present conditions. When the sanitary conditions 
are bettered, the hours of labor shortened and the salary 
raised, then can we begin to look for the mill improve- 
ment. Helen Moore, '13 

Essays, stories, poems, etc., must be left for more 
gifted alumnae, but experiences, why, yes, we have ex- 
periences, even in this far corner of the Balkan States. 

Some are amusing, others pathetic and during the past 
year, war, earthquake and pestilence have made them 
mostly tragic. 

Lovetch, nestled in the Balkan foothills, shared in the 
excitement of mobilization week in September 1912, but 
during the war with Turkey, the "first war" as it is called 
was spared many of the horrors witnessed by larger and 

Page Ten 

(Efje College (greeting* 

more central cities. Turkish prisoners of war were not 
quartered here, hence no Asiatic Typhus, which swept off 
such numbers in other parts. The earthquake in June 
was only a "shock" in Lovetch and spent its force in 
Tirnovo, fifty miles distant. Then came the "second" 
and more awful war between the allied armies. Lovetch 
was occupied during the Roumanian invasion. The 
Roumanian flag was hoisted over the city but the Stars 
and Stripes waved over our mission property and we were 
unharmed and unmolested. Yet the weary weeks dragged 
by, with no mail, no telegraph, no telephone, no com- 
munication with anywhere. A special interview with the 
Roumanian Commandant in charge of the garrison gave 
no satisfactory idea as to how long such conditions would 
continue or as to what would come next. However, the 
next phase was cholera. War had taken the men, cholera 
mowed down the women like grass. Peace was declared 
and the brave Bulgarian soldiers returned in small groups, 
not to a triumphal welcome such as they deserved but to 
silently wend their way to stricken, sorrowing homes, 
many of them bereft now of wife or mother. 

A brave and desperate fight and cholera was banished. 
Then a wave of typhoid swept the country and Lovetch 
is among the stricken cities. 

On October 1 5th, we opened our school with fear 
and trembling, yet grateful, deeply grateful, that under 
such unusual circumstances it had been possible to gather 
forty-three boarding students into our school home. 

Never has Providence been more manifest nof God's 
care more tender than during these months of uncertainty 
and trial. Never were we, two missionaries, lone women, 
though we be, more ready to follow the Master's leading 
and do all in our power for these suffering and (in many 
ways) deeply wronged people. There is always abundant 
compensation for every deprivation in the service of our 
Heavenly King. 

Kate B. Blackburn, '83

The work and worth of an educational institution is 
reflected in the character, the impetus, the efficiency it 
develops in the lives of those who receive its instructions; 
those who pass through its gates of entrance and exit 
having experienced the discipline of its gymnasia, the 
molding influence of its associations, the inspiration of its 
atmosphere and its ideals. 

With this standard in mind it has been most gratifying 
to note in the communities where they are found the 
place held by the alumnae of Illinois Woman's College. 

In the extended journeys made by the president of 
the alumnae association during the past year, visiting 
former students and attending the annual meetings of the 
I. W. C. societies in St. Louis, in Springfield, Decatur, 
Kansas City, Los Angeles and Chicago, opportunity was 
afforded for observation in this matter and it is a source 
of sincere pleasure to know that I. W. C. daughters have 
gone fourth imbued with the spirit of service, and are 
among the leaders in the activities of organized church, 
civic and social life in their communities. 

By way of illustration, a few hours, between trains, 
were spent one day in Vandalia. The people met in- 
cluuded the pastor of the Methodist Episcopal church. In 
remarking upon the fine character of the young women 
returned to his parish from their study in Illinois Woman's 
College he said, "Somer-of them had not been interested 
in the church services when they left home, but they came 
back to us ready to be helpful in any way." 

Some months later a few hours were spent in Santa 
Barbara, California. We had the names of only two 
former students of I. W. C, but we found that one of them 
Mrs. Frank Kellogg, is president of the W. C. T. U., the 
other, Mrs. Winfield Metcalf is regent of the D. A. R., and 
that reminded me that in the last election of officers in 
James Caldwell Chapter of D. A. R. in Jacksonville five 
of the seven ladies elected were I. W. C. alumnae. The 

Page Twelve 

©fje College Greeting* 

recently elected regent of the state D. A. R. organization 
in South Carolina is the brilliant toastmistress of our last 
alumnae reunion, Mrs, F. H. H. Calhoun of the I. W. C. 
class of 1895. 

The interest manifest in the work undertaken by the 
church societies is almost universal. Presidents, secre- 
taries, treasurers of Home and Foreign Missionary and Aid 
societies are natural goals for I. W. C. daughters. Among 
those who are in the foreign field is Mary Melton, '91, in 
Nagasaki, Japan; Kate Blackburn '83 is in Lovetch, Bul- 
garia where she has charge of a school for girls and with 
her Ella G. Blackburn '02 a sister who assists in teaching; 
Emma Mitchell '82, has been for twenty-five years in 
China. In San Francisco, Mrs. Charles Perkins 75 is sec- 
retary of Japanese and Korean work on the Pacific coast 
and in Hawaii. Her duties in the educational rescue and 
religious work among these people take her up and down 
the coast to Honolulu. The W. H. M. S. has no more de- 
voted, enthusiastic, and capable worker. In Des Moines, 
Iowa, Mrs. Anna Woodcock class of 76 is associated with 
her husband in the management of the Deaconess Home 
and Training school and also is secretary of the bureau 
for the children's work in the W. H. M. S. Olive Dunlap 
'88, is a field worker and organizer in the W. H. M. S. of 
the M. E. church. Many are the parsonage homes where 
alumnae of our college are sharing in the labors of the 
parish, so that the members of annual conferences of Illi- 
nois often exchange pleasantries over the number of I. W. 
C.'s who have entered the ministry and advise the bachelor 
clergy to seek admittance to the Woman's College in their 
quest for a help mate. 

In Springfield, Illinois, a notable example of living up 
to the highest efficiency of Christian education is found 
in Mrs. B. M. Griffith, a graduate of the first class, 1852. 
During the past fifty years, Mrs. Griffith in association 
with her husband has been one of the leaders in the church 
and literary circles of the Capital City. She yet has fre- 

Page Thirteen 

Wt)t College Greeting* 

quent place on the club or church society programs, and 
for twenty-five years was secretary of the W. F. M. S. of 
the Springfield Presbytery. 

Undoubtedly the most widely known of our I. W. C. 
alumnae is Mrs. B. T. Vincent of Denver. She graduated 
in the class of 1855. As teacher, pastor's wife, member 
of the national board of the Y. W. C. A. and identified 
with all woman's organizations of the M. E. church, Mrs 
Vincent in her years of service in both east and west has 
left a deep imprint of her fine and lovable personality. 
For thirty-seven consecutive summers Mrs. Vincent has 
attended the New York Chautauqua assembly. She has 
conducted classes for primary teachers, classes in Chris- 
tian ethics for young ladies, and for eighteen years has 
presided over the daily sessions of the Chautauqua 
Woman's Club. In many ways she and her husband have 
been able coadjutors to their distinguished brother, Bishop 
John H. Vincent. 

The call of the W. C. T. U. under the leadership of 
Frances Willard met with instant response from the hearts 
of the Alumnae of the Woman's College. Mrs. Sophia 
Naylor Grubb of the class of '52 was an active organizer 
in St. Louis and Missouri. Mrs. Mary Shepherd Kuhl, 
class of '67 was for some years president of the Illinois 
W. C. T. U. She is now National Chairman of Evangelis- 
tic work. Mrs. Ellen Yates Orr is another of the same 
class who became an active white ribboner in state and 
county organizations. This is only a hint of the long list 
that might be made. 

In the first primary meeting in California to which 
women as voters were admitted there was some uneasiness 
felt as to what course would be taken by the new element 
thus introduced. The Los Angeles papers in their reports 
of the meeting spoke of it as the most quietly purposeful 
convention on record and commended the womanly dig- 
nity and intelligence of the new participants, and closed 
the report by saying that the speech that was clearly the hit

of the day because of its insight and concise statement, its 
bright expression, was made by Mrs. Lulu Williams 
Chapin. Mrs. Chapin is an alumna of 1876. 

The first open door of opportunity for the majority of 
young women completing a school course is the school 
room, and naturally a large proportion of I. W. C. grad- 
uates enter this field of public service. They are at work 
in the grades, in the high schools in the special courses of 
music and home economics and as supervisors of drawing, 
in the colleges and special schools. For the majority 
this is a brief experience of a few years, but there are 
some who have continued teaching as a life long vocation. 
In the class of twenty-eight young ladies who graduated 
last June from the special schools and the college, eighteen 
haye accepted positions as teachers for the year 1913- 
1914. Even so there were requests for still others which 
could not be supplied. 

Among the alumnae who are writers of books, 
sketches, poems, short stories and occasional articles are 
Mrs. Tempe Short Perley, whose story of pioneer life in 
"From Timber to Town" is her best known production. 
Mrs. Martha Capps Oliver has a permanent place with 
eastern and London publishing companies. Her verses 
are found on Xmas, New Year's and Easter cards and she 
also has several volumes of her longer poems. Miss Delia 
Dimmitt '86 is getting wider recognition every year be- 
cause of her charming short stories which are found in 
church papers and magazines. The short stories by Annie 
Hinrichsen '97 and Mrs. Grace Ward Calhoun '95 often 
find a place in the best magazines. The writer of the 
favorite I. W. C. song is Mrs. Phebe Kreider Murray 1890. 

The presidency of a state federation of woman's clubs 
is an all absorbing task. The Nebraska federation con- 
gratulates itself, and is to be congratulated, that Mrs. 
Thomas Gist, I. W. C. '84 has consented to give a second 
term in its service, a position she fills with rare tact and

the west. Mrs. Lauretta Colby Dodds in Burlington, Mo. ; 
Mrs. Cornelia James Hawk in Ocheltree, Kas. ; Miss Eve-

McClurg in Wichita, Kas. 

'54. When I first attended the Illinois Womjui's 
College it was held in the basement of the M. E. chilrch 
on State street. Professor Cummings of the Lebafion 
College was the President. There in that basement was 
planted the firm foundation of the Woman's College of 
today. We were imbued with college spirit. We were 
eager for success in our work. When we moved into 
the new college building, which burned some years later, 
our joys knew no bounds, we were so proud of the success 
the college was making. 

After I graduated in an English course in 1854, I 
taught two years before I was married to Mr. C. G. 
Harrison, who was in the firm of Harrison Milling Com- 
pany at Belleville, Illinois. When later my health failed, 
and I was allotted but a short time to live, we came by an 
ocean voyage to California in 1864, where I soon regained 
my health. I am still in good health, in this glorious 
climate of Pasadena. 

Wishing my Alma Mater continued success and pros- 
perity in the future is the prayer of 

Sarah J. Spruance Harrison, '54.

Frances DeMotte Archibald. After thirty-nine years 
of teaching, which she began in 1874 at the Blind institu- 
tion, she was married in 1887, and is now living at Colum- 
bia, Isle of Pines, West Indies. 

I do thank you so much for the pictures of the dear 
old college. "They did awaken pleasant memories. " I 
was a student there in 1859-60, over fifty years ago. It 
was during the presidency of Dr. Charles Adams. I left 
school, June i860 and was not in Jacksonville again 
until a few years ago. The Woman's College entertained 
the delegates of the D. A. R.. The meeting was delight- 
ful, but I did not see a single familar face. Everything
